Our "Blue" Danube Cruise

Viking Legend Cruise Review by ourdream

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Aug 2015
  • Destination: Europe River
  • Cabin Type: Deluxe Stateroom with French Balcony

This was our first river cruise, and we thoroughly enjoyed it. We started with a pre-cruise stay in Prague at the Hilton-Prague (beautiful hotel). Pre-booked two city tours (a walking/boat/dinner tour and a food tour the next day). Both took us to different areas of this fascinating city. Then it was off to Passau, Germany and the Legend on the Danube River. Wonderful trip visiting fascinating cities, beautiful churches, countryside and historic sites. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and clued us in to the real Von Trapp family history in Salzburg. Wish we had more time to spend in many of the places. Thank goodness for a/c in the hotel and on the Legend, as Europe was experiencing a drought and heat wave. Delicious food, wonderful service, friendly staff and--best of all--we didn't have to pack and unpack for one whole week! How good is that!

Cozy.


Port & Shore Excursion Reviews

Old Town Tour

Tour guide's microphone didn't work, and it was almost impossible to hear what he was saying on our Salzburg tour. Very disappointing. Afterward, we ate lunch and walked about on our own.

Melk Abbey

Beautiful church and grounds with an interesting library with books over 1,000 years old. Shelves went from the floor to the ceiling on two levels.

Bratislava

Kind of disappointing, Bus drives up hill so you can overlook the city on both sides of the river. Interesting to see the Communist-built apartment bldgs. now being painted different colors to brighten things up.

City Tour

Bus tour of both Buda and Pest was interesting with a trip up the hill to see the church overlooking the city. Saw some of the refugees walking through downtown Budapest. Really enjoyed having the Legend go down the Danube at night to see the Parliament and other buildings with floodlights on them.
